Visiting our Austin dental office twice a year for teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings can help keep your smile healthy and beautiful throughout your life. At Dental Smiles, we provide a comprehensive preventive program, utilizing advanced technology and proven methods of care to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health. We personalize treatment to meet individual needs, keeping you informed and at ease throughout every checkup.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. To complement your daily oral hygiene regimen, it is also important to visit our Austin dental office for periodic checkups and professional teeth cleanings. During your teeth cleaning, we will thoroughly remove plaque buildup, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums, and teach you techniques that you can use at home to brush and floss more efficiently. For pediatric patients, our goal is to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health, and help to keep your child’s smile cavity-free from the start with dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments. As part of every patient’s checkup, our dentist provides a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. With periodic exams, we can diagnose tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems from their outset, when they are easiest to treat.
At Dental Smiles, we make every checkup an informative, engaging and worry-free experience. Our state-of-the-art Austin dental office offers convenient weekend appointments, making it easier to schedule your family’s visits. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
